Chamber to Recognize 2013 Award Winners at January 10th Luncheon

For 103 years, the Central Fort Bend Chamber has been the voice of business and growth in Fort Bend County. In 2013, that voice remained strong in large part because of the volunteer efforts and commitments made by many of its almost 800 members. The Chamber will proudly recognize 13 of those members at its 2013 Annual Awards Luncheon, which is scheduled for Friday, January 10th at Cindy’s Palace located at 1102 FM 2977 in Richmond. The event, presented by Allegiance Roofing, will also thank the Chamber’s outgoing Board Directors for their dedication and service.
